It is from Monty Python's "The Meaning of Life", a small mini-movie that leads off the film (and then recurs a bit later on).

The insurance company building is called the "Crimson Permanent Assurance", and it is a building that uproots itself and then sails the "high accountant-seas" taking over other companies with literal hostile mergers.

If you haven't seen "The Meaning of Life", I highly recommend it. It's my favorite Python movie, actually...

It's fun to charter an accountant,
And sail the wide accountan-cy.
To find, explore the funds offshore,
And skirt the shoals of bankruptcy.
It can be manly in insurance.
We'll up your premium semi-annually.
It's all tax-deductible,
We're fairly incorruptible.
We're sailing on the wide accountan-cy!

it was also the debut of the actor that played max headroom. ; )

Close, but according to IMDB, Matt Frewer has an earlier work listed (from the same year), "The Lords of Discipline."

But wait! The release date of Lords was July of 1983, while Meaning of Life was March. Odd. Looks like IMDB doesn't really get things in the right order within a certain year?

The trivia Gold Dubloon is yours, dudemus!
